Enkät bland seglarna?

Update: NORLYS har ju gjort sin hemläxa på den här punkten. Här är NORLYS brukerundersokelse 2007 plus 60 sidor kommentarer. Inte illa!

Här är axplock ur en intressant enkät som kommer från ett antal klubbar i Milwaukee, USA. Ganska mycket samma frågeställningar som vi har här…

A little over a year ago, a group in Milwaukee got together to survey racers in order for area clubs to improve their programs. About 285 people – skippers, crew, representatives of 4 clubs, ODs and PHRF sailors participated in a 30 question in-depth interview.

While it is specific to a region, it is a large, highly representative sample of racing sailors, and I’ll bet that some of the lessons in Milwaukee will apply elsewhere. So here are some highlights.

Visst borde man i något läge ta tag i detta? Nu snackas det massa på bloggar, bryggor och i enskilda klubbar, men det hade varit bättre om vi fick klara besked kring vad som hindrar folk från att kappsegla. Vem är närmast sörjande? SSF, SHF eller VKSF? Idéer?

Q2: Which best descibes your interest in sailboat racing?

Q3: Approximately how many times do race sailboats per year?

Q5: How valuable are the following aspects of sailboat racing for you?

Q8: How big is the boat that you race on?

Q9: How many crew does the boat require to be sailed well?

Q19: Does a shortage of crew ever prevent you from racing?

Q22: What type of racing would you like to see more of? (Check all that apply)

Q26: Would you be willing to help in some way to enable more racing? (Select all those that apply)

Q28: Do you have anything to add to this survey that you feel has not been covered?

  • Formalize and emphasize cross organizational racing programs
  • Improve bay-wide communication and coordination
  • Develop a schedule that is fun easy and convenient
  • Build programs to train the next generation of crew and skippers
